Sexier sweaters shop online
sometimes students ask me, “but then, how would you block a sweater knit in the round?
” and most times, i will recommend to then go straight to wet blocking because it can be awkward or even impossible to steam block the details on garments knit in one piece.
i have a large, permanently installed pressing bench with a pinnable surface that is covered with batting, muslin, and a terry towel.
while i did fix the puckering problem, i ended up with another underwhelming neck detail—i had to rip back about four inches of the sweater in progress, grr.
still, every time i looked at the beautiful swatches of this mega cable, my determination returned.
you can use a hand-held steamer for blocking as well if you prefer; these are generally cooler and do not require the use of a towel, but it’s a good idea to test your fabric to see how close to the surface you can hold the tool without causing damage.
my hand held steamer feels awkward and needs constant refilling; i always gravitate back to my iron.
